Cutting Ice Above Goldie's Dam

This photo depicts three men cutting ice above Goldie's Mill in Guelph, Ontario in January 1919. Before mechanical refrigerators, cutting ice was a common winter chore. Ice would be stored in an insulated ice house until warmer weather arrived, when it would be sold and used for cold food storage.
